Blue cards and exemption cards for Licensed Care Services

In order to receive and maintain a licence, people involved with a licensed care service are required to be suitable to undertake their role within that service.

We have developed a guide to clarify the screening requirements for different roles within a care service.

Blue Cards

Certain persons associated with licensed care services (persons in regulated employment) are required to hold a blue card or exemption card issued by the Department of Justice and Attorney General (DJAG).

Exemption cards are applicable to registered teachers and police officers proposing to start or continue to be licensees and directors of a licensed care service.
